    What a fascinating time this is on politics. Just when you thought we couldn’t get any worse.

    As David Davis has said this evening, this is the fork in the road. We have the worst of all options on the table. They won't have careers to worry about if they sign us up for this shit.

    Well at least now we will see what is actually going to happen. Prediction - multiple resignations from the Cabinet tonight or tomorrow. Vote of no confidence by the end of the week. New PM by Christmas.

    We should have no doubt that those in charge in Europe want more integration. Honestly they are very clear about it. More tax unification, a European Army, bigger control over budgets, the ability to punish member states for not complying etc. They want it all. They want it all. They want it all, and they want it now!

    Exactly. Although Sydney if with work, Perth if not.

    How Was Your Day?

    It depends on work; if they want me then probably mid to late January. If not then September most likely.

    If you think voters are morons, you don’t understand anything about people.

    That new government will have a mandate to actually Brexit, and will probably agree a interim arrangement for 2-3 years in the meantime. No deal is shit for the EU as well. You will note i have been pro-no deal barring a good one on the table, but it has become clear that the Government is completely incapable of managing to prepare effectively, something they should have done before triggering article 50, and certainly before giving away anything at all to the EU negotiators. What a bloody mess this has been. Honestly if you said today we could remain for 2-5 years then reconsider I would probably say yes. I still believe the EU is doomed, but my assumption that we were better off taking the chance to leave in advance of its collapse and being proof there is life outside it has been well and truly wasted by May and her idiots.

    They are not making that decision unchecked, they have to put it to parliament, a legal requirement which many were delighted with 2 years ago but now this is apparently not enough. Personally I think that barring an massive shift from the EU in the coming days, whatever is put before parliament will be rejected, the Government will fall, a general election is inevitable, and will require a new conservative PM. Welcome Prime Minister Gove!

    Saw U2 in Dublin last night, great gig but I was worried Bono was going to fall off the stage; he was standing too close to the Edge!

    Jojo wrote exactly what everyone thinks now; we are sliding towards a terrible deal which will be rejected by parliament and probably by the people in a referendum. If so May must resign immediately and let’s see what we can make of it from there; either a deferment or a better deal, if not revocation of article 50 at least in the short term. What a ****ing mess.
